Rocks Off #1: Elliot Smith – Sunset Junction

23 Mar

Rocks Off is a new feature we will be doing, focusing on a particular song and a live version of that same song, the caveat being that the live performances will feature band members who cant play their instruments properly cause they got too fucked up. So I’m gonna kick this off with an intense double dose, and one of the most tragic at that. Songs from this concert are frequently labeled as “(Attempt)”, songs written by Elliott Smith himself, a man who was known to fly through high level classical music on the piano…


Happiness

Happiness (Live)

Needle In the Hay

And this right here which sums it all up, comprised of footage of a few different songs…

“I’m gonna finish this song, I’m sorry.”

“I got disillusioned recently. Because this industry sucks!”

“I can’t make it, so, I’ll play one more song okay?”

“Can I play needle in the hay and stop?”

It’s All Kid Hum.
